Our Next Meeting: Wednesday 21st February 2018
Arduino/Raspberry Pi / BBC :Microbits -All

This is a somewhat open-ended hands-on meeting where anything goes. If you have any of these systems or anything related to robotics or machine control and would like to bring them along to demonstrate and talk about them then that could be very interesting.

Our Last meeting was the Social Evening
on January 17th 2018 will be at 7:30 p.m.

At the Compasses Inn at Holbrook. This was a new venue suggested by John although it had been taken over since his last visit. However it did not disappoint and we had a warm welcome and an enjoyable evening. We were all seated on one long table and as there were few other people we weren't disturbed by anyone else. I found the food very tasty and there was a very good selection I for one would be happy to visit again. Here are a few photos as a reminder of the evening.
